How about AZ Diamondback Tickets? They not only offer gift cards and value packs, which include tickets and food, but they also have some great theme nights, such as “Friday Night Fireworks”!

For the movie loving Dad … 

If you have not already tried out the Ipic Theaters in Scottsdale, you must! Not only do you get reclining seats, pillows, blankets, and a server to serve you food and drinks from Tanzy’s amazing menu, but you can pre-buy your tickets … meaning no waiting in line!

For the R&R Dad …

The “D”eserving “A”nd “D”ue (DAD) package at Camelback Inn and Spa offers just that!

For the charity inspired Dad …

One of my favorite gifts to give that hard-to-buy-for-Dad is a charitable donation in their name. Whether they have a favorite charity, or you pick one, what Dad would not feel honored by such a gift?

Here are a few of my favorites…

-National Charities-

-Local AZ Charities-

For the sentimental Dad …

I love Etsy! From supporting small business owners, to the unique handmade goods, Etsy has it all! If there is ever a time I can’t find a gift for someone I jump on Etsy! Type in a few search items and you get 100s of results! They have a whole Father’s Day day gift center, with some fabulous gift ideas! Many of the shop owners offer expedited shipping, and even if you can’t get the gift in time for Father’s Day, you can always gift a picture of the item and say it is on its way! Nothing like a unique handmade gift for Father’s Day!

For the hobby loving Dad …

For that Dad who has a hobby, why not put together a creative gift basket? You can literally stop in Target, Wal-Mart, or a grocery store and come out with a super fun and creative gift. World Market is one of my favorites for putting together gift baskets and is a one stop shop for all gift baskets and filler items… and they have an abundance of fantastic Father’s Day items! Instead of using an actual basket, how about a small cooler, ice bucket, planter, or metal bucket?
